Empoli have continued their excellent form under new coach Davide Nicola by beating his old team Salernitana 3-1 in Serie A.

Empoli rose four places to 15th. They are eight points clear of Salernitana.
Visitors Empoli were fortunate to take the lead midway through the first half.

Nicolo Cambiaghi's cross from the left took a deflection off the head of defender Alessandro Zanoli and looped over his stranded goalkeeper.

Shon Weissman equalised after 69 minutes for Salernitana with a glancing header from Antonio Candreva's right cross.

M'Baye Niang secured the win from the penalty spot three minutes from the final whistle and Matteo Cancellieri completed the scoring with a fine breakaway finish in injury time.

Inter Milan top the league and are four points clear of Juventus with a game in hand.
